CULLMAN, Ala. – The County Animal Shelter’s Donna Ruttkay shares this week’s Cullman Tribune Pet of the Week: Thor!

According to Ruttkay, Thor is a 1.5-2-year-old medium-energy Border Collie mix. Thor, known to be a quick learner, is developing super social skills at a lightning-fast pace. With the recent hot days, he’s discovered his love for the kiddie pool. This considerate and respectful boy also likes to be helpful and wear his backpack, carrying water for everyone!  

Thor is certain to make someone a wonderful companion, hiking or reading dog!

Thor’s adoption fee includes DHLPP vaccine, Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, general exam at the vet, microchip, free 30-day health insurance policy issued by 24PetWatch (with valid email only) and a free bag of food from Cullman Pet Depot (you must pay sales tax).

 Animal shelter staff and volunteers work with their dogs to make sure they are accustomed to being around people, walking on a leash and practicing good behavior. Several of the shelter’s canine friends have even been “hired” to work as therapy and special needs service dogs.  

Please consider adopting to give a rescued pet a chance at a happy and healthy life.
